* In ''Theatre/CyranoDeBergerac'', Cyrano composes a ballade while engaged in a swordfight. Each stanza ends with the line, "À la fin de l'envoi, je touche!" ("And then, as I end the refrain, thrust home!") Which he does at the end of the ballade. This also contains a French pun; the French "toucher" (conjugated "touche") can refer to a fatal blow struck during a fight, but also to the more direct cognate "touch". At the actual end of the fight, he grievously insults his opponent by maneuvering him into a position where he could kill him, and instead simply poking him on the nose with his finger.
** ...depending on the production.

He then proceeds to shoot them all without even pulling out of the waitress. Notably, the experience leaves her terrified out of her wits and quite possibly traumatized.
